Do you have a case officer to email? I'd assume everything is in order but needed to refer medicals so if they have passed you should hear v soon.

Re: SMC ...timeline so far
you would need to check the Immigration site for the timelines on the branch you submitted your application to for a guide to how long the whole process would take. You would need to add on any time that delays have been caused because of things like your medical being referred, questions for employer etc etc. If you still haven't heard after the guide time and extra days I would give it another week then email the CO for an update. usually when the CO has come to a conclusion on your application it goes off for a secondary check before formal confirmation is made which in our case took a further 2 weeks, this was added on to the first time line guide.

Hi . Thanks for replying .

I also cant understand after we send all information , there was silent for a month and after a month if they did anything that was medical referredd which has been successful .

Hi Mrs Fychan

You right dear
Maybe I will wait for one more week then ask my advisor to give my CO a email regarding status.

Even i call last week to contact centre .They said at the moment good news for you is that your medical has been accepted .

I'm not sure your going down a route that gives you residency before entering. We are on 2yr visa thT leads to residency so took 5 days to approve although ridiculous amount of paperwork.
